I’m a sucker for a nerd

So I am continuing my journey in the world of webtoons and finding that it is sucking more and more of my time away. I got to the point where now it had to be a reward for after I do my work… Well drat… haha

So in my world where I am trying to be a responsible adult another webtoon that I would like to share with you really touching on everything that I like to see in a story.

Abs.

Okay entry done.

Ha! Okay I’m not that shallow… *cough*

There are many different characters and there is a great showing of diversity in this webtoon. The best part of it being diverse is that what makes the characters diverse doesn’t just make the character. Okay I’ll try to explain.

So in a lot of writers trying to make their work be more diverse with different genders, races, sexualities, and disabilities. They make that item like the most important thing about the character.

For example: In my book I’m writing now I have a character who is bisexual. I actually don’t even say that she is bisexual in the first book or even the second since she just IS bisexual it isn’t the main thing that defines her and I shouldn’t have to make that always the most important thing about her. She has other attributes not just her sexuality.

Am making more sense? Sometimes I feel like I would be better at saying things verbally so I don’t offend people haha.

So back to Let’s Play the creator is doing a wonderful job with diversity without having to slap it in our faces. It is natural and it is real.

I love the extra ways that she personified the main characters social anxiety also.

I always love it when artists put a face to something that we may have to struggle with in our daily lives. The emotocons are the best.

So honestly if you are already done reading “I Love Yoo” check out this webtoon and you won’t be disapointed. Great character, always relatatble, and so much nerd content that it will make your inner nerd child swoon.

Also there is a really cute dog…

So once again I’m sorry dear readers. I’m trying to get you addicted to something else and then you will wait by your phone every Tuesday for this lovely comic to upload. haha

Happy Reading!

Personal Update

I just wanted to mention that I fell really behind in reading your amazing blogs and I probably will miss some of them and it makes me so sad. I had a car accident and that sent me into depression mode for about 4 days where I didn’t do anything. I’m getting back up on my feet, but I wanted you all to know that I didn’t forget about your blogs. I just didn’t do anything because I couldn’t. But I’m rising up again and that is all I can do. I love you all and thank you for being the understanding awesome individuals that you are!

  1. I’ve been reading this alongside I love Yoo and I love it so much! I find Sam so relatable as a character! The whole thing is so relatable in all honesty! Also in response to your update I’m so sorry to hear you got into an accident! Take good care of yourself if you are struggling with depression! Don’t worry if you cannot keep up with peoples blogs because it happens and what’s happening in your life is the most important thing! Take care and just do whatever you can! 😊

    1. Sam is amazing and I really feel her when her CONFRONTATION emotocon comes out lol. I am horrible with all confrontation. I used to cry when I would call costumer service and try to get refunds haha. Thank you very much. It was a shorter low than most and for that I am so grateful.

  2. I hope you’re feeling better! 💖💖🍻
    I TOTALLY understand what you’re trying to say about the diversity of a character becoming their defining trait. Authors are SO BLATANT about these things, so the character is not just casually gay or black or handicapped or something, it doesn’t come up as a passing plot point, they ARE “THE gay character” or “THE handicapped character” or something… Like the author is holding up a big sign saying “LOOK AT ME, I’M DIVERSE!!” Can’t a character just be who they are without that being ALL that they are?? Hopefully that made sense! Ha ha! 🍻💖

    1. You said it better than me haha! It is so hard to explain and when you are pitching agents they say they want diverse characters, but it feels odd to say “THIS CHARACTER IS BI AND THIS ONE IS KOREAN!!” HA It is such a struggle when you know about all your characters but very rarely you put all that information into the book unless it really is called for to mention.

  3. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear about your accident and your slip down the depression hole. I’m glad you are better again. Don’t feel you have to read and comment though, we understand. Everybody would understand under these circumstances especially. ❤️ I am still trying to catch up after my episode.

    So, you really had to go and lure me into yet another webtoon. 😫😎 A not finished one to boot. I get how you mean with the diversity thing. It should just be diverse and not DIVERSE. There shouldn’t be a need to tell the readers about how it is diverse just incorporate it naturally. Don’t slap it in the face. If you do that you are doing it wrong.

    1. Thank you very much. This was a shorter break thankfully and I was able to get out of it much faster which amazes me since sometimes months can go by. I’m still trucking and not quite back yet but getting there.

    Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear about your car accident! That must have been so scary. I hope you aren’t hurt and I’m glad that you’re starting to rise up again after that. Take care and I hope you continue to feel better! ❤
